The 11th annual Santa's Workshop will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at Baylor University in the Student Life Center. More than 975 preschoolers and 200 adults are expected to attend this year. Baylor Student Activities, Baylor Staff Council and ARAMARK will sponsor the event; along with additional help from other Baylor departments.

The workshop is intended to provide interaction between the Waco community and Baylor University. Also, children ages 3- 5 are given the opportunity to enjoy gifts, food and a visit from the man himself, Santa Claus.

"It is such a collaborative effort," said Jessica Truglio, coordinator for community services. Truglio said everyone; from Baylor athletes, faculty, and students other various volunteers will to help with the event.

Expressing her enthusiasm for the event, Truglio said "The kids are just amazing; it's a great place for kids to be." Truglio said Santa's Workshop allows the children to be in an atmosphere they may normally not be exposed to. The gala encourages them to want to be in an educational environment.

Registration is closed, but volunteers are needed and should arrive between 9 a.m. and noon.
